lexzilla: (♪ adam cockatoo times two)

I have just spent 6 ANGRY hours getting one of those fake anti-virus virus' off my laptop.

I ended up following the instructions here and it seems to have worked! Bless you computer geeks. You have my eternal love <3333

I am watching this over and over again in attempt to sooth frazzled nerves and bring on the happy. ADAM + COCKATOO cannot fail!

This is good news.


\o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ Ok. Technically I never win anything. But my friend does and I MADE her enter, so it's kind of like me winning, right? But anyway, who cares because I get to go. BTW it's a winners only thing and I couldn't have bought tickets even if I really really wanted to. I'm so happy. YOU GUYS!! YOU GUYS!!!

[LOL. I've been flailing about this for at least 9 hours.]

This is especially awesome because out of the TWO gigs he's doing in the UK, I had no chance of getting into the other one at G-A-Y one as it's mainly gonna be members only and I don't want to deprive Adam of a room full of drunk gay boys.

Just need the ash cloud to fuck off now so he can actually get to the UK *fingers crossed*

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] moorspede, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefan and anonymous for my puppies. I imagine, when I'm not looking, they'll frolic together! ♥ ♥ ♥

Question: is anyone else getting lots of spam comments today or is it just me?

♥ Check it out! I'm so honoured by this! My fic Come Play With Me has been made into a beautiful pdf by [livejournal.com profile] too_rational. It looks really pretty and includes all the amazing art made by [livejournal.com profile] gwyntastic . If you want, you can find the download link for it here and there are also many other great J2 fics for download here and SPN ones here. It's such a cool resource!

♥ I was having thoughts this morning about why I'm so excited by Adam Lambert. Mainly, it's because I think his voice is an amazing fucking instrument. But it's also because he reminds of a quote from the late great Bill Hicks. It's over a decade old, but still feels just as relevant when I think about all the shit Adam gets for daring to be himself in this day and age.

This is made clear near the end of the Montreal set where Hicks rants about the poor state of contemporary, state-sanctioned pop, the kind of tuneless, harmless pabulum hailed by the authorities as representing 'a good image for children'. "Since when did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children to listen to people who fucking ROCKED! I don't care if they died in puddles of their own vomit! I want someone who plays from his fucking heart! 'Mummy, mummy, the man Bill told me to listen to has a blood bubble coming from his nose!' 'SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO HIM PLAY'." This followed by an astonishing sequence of mimed obscenities; an image summoned up of clean-cut New Kids on the Block fans goose-stepping, giving the Hitler salute and shouting 'Heil! Heil!' then ‘sucking Satan's cock’.      source

Since when did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? What do you guys think?

♥ It also led me to think about another criticism that Adam often gets: that he's not authentic. If we really are in that stage of post-postmodernism where 'authenticity' is understood as a return to what is seen as the traditional, then I find it very sad. Not only because it's a tradition that never existed but also because I dislike the implied judgment of authentic being good and inauthentic being the other. It speaks of a conservatism that I am always [naively?] hoping we are moving past.

New movie purchase :) )

I'm pretty much going to be ignoring the big elephant in my journal, but I just want to say a big THANK YOU to [livejournal.com profile] moorspede, [livejournal.com profile] pigeongirl99, [livejournal.com profile] enablelove, [livejournal.com profile] countess7 and [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare for your words of care. NGL I got a little teary, but for the first time in a few days it was in a good way. LOVE YOU GUYS.

Moving on.

I don't think anyone does but...Today has been declared lurker amnesty day! Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Here for the fic recs? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just half for that.

Also I think I finally have an unpopular fandom opinion \o/ 

Here it is: Sherlock Holmes is a god-awful movie. You know that generally I love bad movies - I say YES to giant killer bunny rabbits! YES to mutant shep on the rampage. YES to giant chicken feet of doom!* - but this wasn't even one of the so bad its good kind of films. It was just bad. Let me prove it to you [very very briefly]:
  • This is not a Holmes movie. It's a generic action blockbuster shoved into a period setting
  • Jude Law's forehead is terrifying
That said, I only lasted 35 minutes! Maybe it gets better after that?  Doubt it :P  

* Night of the Lepus / Godmonster of Indian Flats / The Giant Claw

I bought words from the awesome [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk  in a charity thing and she wrote this piece of adorableness. It's a college AU. And who doesn't love those?

Title: The Anti-Type
Rating: PG13
Pairing: Adam/Kris
Word Count: ~2500 words.
Summary: Kris doesn't have a type, but if he had one, Adam wouldn't be it.

Did you all have a good time? I had a very debauched night/morning of drunken tomfoolery followed by a severe hangover followed by lunch with my parents :D

Am finally home and excited to catch up with all the amazing fic being posted at [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas and watch all the Adam Lambert gridlocked goodness! Bring on the pretty!

Thank you for my cookie [livejournal.com profile] smidirini <33

to stay up until half four in the morning, when you're already tired, to watch Adam at the AMAs. You end up slightly hysterical and sending odd pm's to [livejournal.com profile] moorspede along the lines of 'ahhhh I'm to emotionally invested which way is up who am I did that just happen'. And the going even further off the rails by deciding that as you have a meeting at 9.45am, it would be better to power through staying up all night then getting only a few hours sleep. *facepalm*

My thoughts are the performance are still all over the place. Maybe I'll be more coherent after sleep?

The bad - Adam can sing like no one else I've heard in a long long time. You would not know that from this performance :( But you know what makes him all the more awesome, he owned that on twitter.

The good - The performance. Adam still sounded okay and he is one balls-of-steel fierce mofo. Stage show was EPIC! AND GLORIOUS. AND THE MOST PERFECT ROCK'N'ROLL MOMENT of an otherwise bland and dreary show [with the exception of Gaga who is growing on me].

The genius - Love him or hate him, who is anyone talking about? And I think that's just how he likes it. And how he's using it to make smart points about gender, performance and equality. Here's your politics OUT magazine!

The hideous - Here's what I really find offensive. People are complaining about their kids seeing Adam's gay sexcapades rather then Eminem rapping about how many rapes he's got under his belt. REALLY PEOPLE?

The pretty - he brought it <3

In conclusion: I love this man!
lexzilla: (Ω j2 not amused)
It's now 2.45 am. I have spent the last four hours fixing my internet connection. My head hurts.
lexzilla: (Ω j2 married)
Ooops. It seems like my Adam Lambert obsession made me forget I had a list of Jared/Jensen fics to rec, so once again this has gotten a little longer than intended.You've all probably read these by now, but I'm reccing them anyway because the authors are fabulous :D

cunningly hidden under this cut )

I'll add them into the main lists over the weekend.

lexzilla: (Ω j2 face smish)
I cleared out some of the dead links from the AU recs lists. It made me a little sad to see some of the amazing stories we've lost recently :(

So to cheer myself up, I've updated another recs list. This time it's the domestic bliss one, otherwise known as already in a relationship fic recs. I've got to give big thanks to[livejournal.com profile] moorspede for giving me hand when google went evil nuts.

Let me know if there are any problems!

Recs ahoy

So many fics to read. So little time. I haven’t read nearly as many [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fics as I’ve wanted to. The sum total of Sam/Dean fics that I’ve read has been 3! Lame. That said, I loved each of them (The incestuous courtship of the antichrist's bride, Always You, without time or space and Crush). All very different and all enjoyable in very different ways save for the fact that I think they’re well written. I’ve read more J2 fics because that’s my fandom bag and, man, they’re making me happy. As are all the non big bang fics. In fact, I’m in a happy little fic reading bubble.

Hence the recs now, as my list of stories that I wanted to go YAY about has gotten pretty long.

J2 fic recs [+ 1 J3 & one Jensen/Jeff] )
I’ll add the AU, getting together & illness and injury recs to the updated master-posts. The rest will have to wait until those are in the new improved format too.

Fellow cat lovers! I just got a FURMINATOR. Why did no one tell me about this before? It's AMAAAAZING.
